The raven haired alien/vampire and the red headed she-devil are joining forces for a new team-up comic book ongoing series!
The new series from Dynamite Comics starts in September, written by the multitalented and Eisner-winning Jordie Bellaire (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Redlands) with art by Drew Moss (Star Wars).
The story starts in 1969, the genesis of Vampirella – timed perfectly with her 50th Anniversary now being celebrated in 2019. Vampi’s new to Earth and still adapting to our world. She finds herself attracted to the supernatural and paranormal mysteries of the world. When suddenly she runs across a young Red Sonja, plucked out of time and clueless. The two women set forth on an adventure, collaborating as both detectives and warriors to find out what has happened… only for more space-time shenanigans to befall them! Do not expect any cliché misunderstanding fights, these two Women of Dynamite are working together, no holds barred.
This series marks Jordie Bellaire further flexing her skills as a writer, following widespread acclaim for her smash hit Buffy The Vampire Slayer relaunch.
“Vampirella and Red Sonja are like the buddy cop team we never realized we wanted or could have. We’re hoping to stick the landing on something funny, upbeat and mysterious,” said writer Jordie Bellaire. “Vampirella and Red Sonja will begin as strangers but soon become fast friends that look to support and encourage the other, all while being comical and maybe slightly murderous. This book has been a pleasure to write and I’m delighted with the team – everyone is bringing something awesome to the story! I’m so happy to be here with them.”
VAMPIRELLA/RED SONJA #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2019. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies with their local comic book retailers.
